Ndamukong Suh Is Accused of Playing Dirty: Should He Be Suspended?

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been accused of being a dirty football player since entering the NFL last season. On Thanksgiving, he proved his critics right after he shoved Green Bay Packers lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith to the ground, roughed him up after the whistle and stomped on him. He was then ejected from the game.


Five days later, the NFL has not revealed what punishment Suh will face as of press time, but various reports indicate he will serve at least a two-game suspension. After a hot start, the Lions are 7-4. Suh may be one of the reasons the Lions have seen a franchise rebirth in 2011. But if they miss the playoffs he might also have to bear part of the responsibility.


The Lions are expected to issue a $25,000 fine for Suh's ejection, too. But keep in mind that this is not his first run-in with the league. Suh has been fined before and even met with commissioner Roger Goodell to smooth things over — so much for that now. With a big contract and pricey endorsement deals with companies such as Subway, if Suh doesn't clean up his act he could be losing a lot more than 25 grand and two game checks.
Judging by his post-game reaction, saying there was no malicious intent and denying what actually happened, it seems like Suh and the Lions franchise have some growing up to do. On the bright side, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Suh called Goodell to apologize for his actions last week. The bad news? You only get the benefit of the doubt so many times in the NFL. What do you think: Should he be suspended?

    I want a good rough game when plays going on. But after the whistle? Hitting someone, kicking someone on the ground after the whistle blows? Thats cowardly.

    If I was a coach I wouldn't let the NFL handle it. The average team has at least 10 players sitting on the bench just drinking Gatorade and collecting a paycheck. If I was an NFL coach the minute that guy does something messed up. Those scrubs will be put in the game for one purpose and one purpose only "Mess that guy up!" Its football not politics go out there and give him a taste of his own medicine!!!

    like how j.p. morgan(the man) drove genius nikola tesla crazy by pulling funding of his genius ideas, suh is at a breakpoint due to the current ongoings the following statement made by former dallas cowboy pete gent from 1978 happens today:


    The following was sent to me by a fan. It was taken from "Long Island's Own Newspaper" Newsday dated December 8, 1978 and was attributed to Pete Gent, member of the Dallas Cowboys from 1964-68:

    "For there should be a fundamental difference between professional and amateur sports that goes beyond the technical distinction of whether athletes make money from their sport. I learned the difference at the end of training camp my rookie year with the Dallas Cowboys. Management called a meeting to explain the responsibilities of being a professional football player. The man to give the best advice was the team's public relations director. He told us: "Boys, this is show business." With these words in mind, nothing about professional sports, even Howard Cosell, is mystifying. Professional athletes are first and foremost show business, dealing in illusion and entertainment. The first responsibility of the players is to the audience, not themselves. If the audience wants winners, that is what is given. If it wants losers, that also it will get. T...

    being the athletic genius suh is he is having a meltdown playing the big bosses charade and having to keep his mouth shut about it since the nfl hasn't come out of the box like the WWE did decades ago about their product being FIXED FOR TV RATINGS!!!!!

    This guy should absolutely be suspended. I watched it over and over trying to reason why he would have done such a thing. Based on his previous actions, there is no excuse for it. He should be suspended until understands the rules of the game. If that is forever than so be it. I am talking about Suh in particular, but anyone that plays like that consistently should be suspended until the learn the game. It is a game. It isn't about physically destroying the other team.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has come down with a two-game suspension for the Detroit Lions' defensive tackle Ndamuking Suh, which is less than he deserved. Suh's roughing up and stomping of a Green Bay Packers player during their hotly-contested game on Thanksgiving Day was one of the worst displays of unsportsmanlike conduct you'll ever see in an NFL game. Sure, defensive players will often take one for the team by playing a bit dirty and earning 15 yards in the process, just to establish their prowess and to intimidate the opposing team's offense. However, Suh's actions were not only a blatant penalty, they could have seriously injured the Green Bay player. Also, it was NOT a smart move on his part. Detroit has a sunny outlook in their playoff hopes this season, for the first time in awhile, and Suh, as one of the best defensive players in the NFL, has the potential to cost his team dearly with a two-game suspension. His coach should have bitch-slapped him into next year for making such a stupid decision. The Lions as a team have a bad reputation in the league for playing dirty, and Suh's actions only added to this low opinion of them. Calling Goodell and apologizing all over himself, TWICE no less, isn't going to go very far in the future. The commissioner isn't known for his forgiving nature when it comes to on-field, AND off-field, shenanigans, and I think Suh has worn out his welcome in that respect. He dodged a bullet with only a two-game suspension. Shame on him.

    He should go out for at LEAST 2 games, be fined HALF his annual salary and have to go to anger management classes until the therapist deems him to be able to control himself at least the majority of the time. He should also be put on probation and if there is another incident he should be terminated ON THE SPOT !

    For any players who distribute such bad behavior or sportsmanship as Ndamukong Suh did should be suspended along with a big fined. If he doesn't change his behavior then they need to get rid of him period. He even had the nerve to try to lie about what he did, when everyone could see what he had done. He need to know that he is "replaceable" and he need to shape-up or they will let him go.

    2 game suspension seems to fit the crime. Hopefully he realizes it's too expensive to continue being an @$$hole.

    He kicked Matt Schaub in his 'package' during the Texans/Lions game. It was a deliberate kick. Suh was on the ground right by the QB, and you can plainly see him extend his leg to kick him.
